    Please look at the attached JPG file. How do I search and replace the character in cell H3? What is causing this character to be inserted in some cells? I am having to manually remove this character from a huge file. Any solutions?? Please help.

    Where is the data coming from? It looks as if a certain font was used that is not supported by your computer. IE: the box in theentry field after the word program. Try to copy and paste the font in the cell to a Word document to find out what it is.

    actually that looks like the cell format has a hard line break in it
    (see the white box in the cell contents above the spreadsheet where there's 2 lines of text?)

    did this data used to in a word document or imported from word?
